Access data/ Server log files
For technical reasons, the following data, among others, which your Internet browser transmits to us, are recorded (so-called server log files):
- browser type and version
- Operating system used
- Website from which you visit us (referrer URL)
- Website you are visiting
- Date and time of your access
- Your Internet Protocol (IP) address.
This data is necessary for the proper provision of the service. It is only stored for our own security purposes (e.g. identification of DOS attacks).
On our website, we offer you the possibility of contacting us by e-mail and/or via a contact form. In this case, the information provided by the user is stored for the purpose of processing the contact. The data will not be passed on to third parties. The data collected in this way is also not compared with data that may be collected by other components of our site.
We use various newsletters to inform you about us and our offers.
If you would like to receive the newsletter, we require a valid email address from you as well as information that allows us to verify that you are the owner of the email address provided or that the owner agrees to receive the newsletter. No further data will be collected. This data is only used for sending the newsletter and will not be passed on to third parties.
When you register for the newsletter, we store your IP address and the date of registration. This storage serves solely as proof in the event that a third party misuses an email address and registers to receive the newsletter without the knowledge of the authorised person.
You can revoke your consent to the storage of the data, the email address and their use for sending the newsletter at any time. The revocation can be made via a link in the newsletters themselves, in your profile area or by sending a message to the contact options above.
We use so-called cookies on our website to recognise multiple use of our offer by the same user/internet connection owner. Cookies are small text files that your Internet browser stores on your computer. They serve to optimise our internet presence and our offers. These are mostly so-called “session cookies”, which are deleted again after the end of your visit.
In some cases, however, these cookies provide information to automatically recognise you. This recognition is based on the IP address stored in the cookies. The information obtained in this way is used to optimise our offers and to provide you with easier access to our site.
Integration of third-party services and content
It is possible that third-party content, such as videos from YouTube, map material from Google Maps, the integration of the Google search engine, RSS feeds or graphics from other websites are integrated within this online offer. This always requires that the providers of this content (hereinafter referred to as “third-party providers”) are aware of the IP address of the user. Without the IP address, they would not be able to send the content to the browser of the respective user. The IP address is thus necessary for the presentation of this content. We endeavour to only use content whose respective providers only use the IP address to deliver the content. However, we have no influence if the third-party providers store the IP address, e.g. for statistical purposes. Insofar as we are aware of this, we will inform users of this.
Information / revocation / deletion
You can contact us free of charge if you have any questions regarding the collection, processing or use of your personal data and the correction, blocking, deletion or revocation of consent given. We would like to point out that you have the right to correct incorrect data or delete personal data, provided that this claim does not conflict with any legal obligation to retain data.
